My wife and I were in Budapest for several days, and spent half a day with Zoltan and his amazing Communist Era tour. This was certainly one of the highlights of our trip. Zoltan is so polite and knowledgeable about the history of Hungary and Budapest during the Communist times because he lived there during it and could provide a... More

My wife and I spent a half day with Zoltan and without a shadow of a doubt it was the highlight of our short break in Budapest. Zoltan imparted his knowledge of not just the history but also the architecture, politics and some insight into the dichotomy of the people in Budapest. It was a pleasure spending time with him...

Our Communist Era tour with Zoltan was an informative and thoroughly enjoyable 4 hours. He picked my husband and I up in the city and we travelled out to Memento Park in his Landrover, then to a number of sites in the city. His explanations and insights helped us gain a much greater understanding than if we had visited unaccompanied.... More

Zoltan exceeded any and all expectations. He met our family of 4 at a location of our choosing and immediately found a hidden gem for a super traditional and delicious Hungarian lunch. We then proceeded to spend the entirety of the afternoon exploring the Castle Hill and learning everything there is to know about Hungarian history, politics, geography and more... More

We had the opportunity to have Zoltan as our personal guide for a whole day and it was a fantastic experience! Zoltan is a very cultured man, with a very interesting perspective of the country and its history. His wide range of knowledge make his tour guide quite insightful. His rich accumulation of data and knowledge plus his openness and... More

We spent four days in Budapest, but we were feeling we didn't know anything about the city and Hungary in general. Zoltan helped us with his encyclopedic culture, and showed us what he loves to call the absurdistan. We enjoyed a lot the full day we spent together and even with a terrible freezing wind he continued his tour and... More

This tour was a highlight of our trip. Zoltan is an exceptional guide. Not the usual generic tour but personalized and informative. You get an authentic feel for the culture - past and present, historical and political. We started at our hotel and had a walking tour of Pest followed by a subway/bus ride to Buda Castle area. We saw... More

We have done many standard tours in other cities which include the routine sites and stories but our tour with Zoltan was different. He is a qualified guide but his tour is quite unconventional. Yes, we went past the main sites and got the stories but he also included his personal views on the history, politics and culture of Budapest... More

I grew up in Budapest in the 70s and 80s and I'm slowly introducing the city to my young adult children who grew up in the USA. Zoltan certainly made the tour very interesting for all of us. I have to admit I learnt a lot of new things about my own birthplace that I never knew before.He is good... More
